The Archdiocese took out an ad in today’s Inquirer. It can be found on page 15. It shares where their resources are going – with a few key omissions. Contributing Catholics should demand a comprehensive annual financial report rather than a misleading ad. While much money is spent on extremely important causes, funds are also used to pay priests who have been removed from ministry and to cover archdiocesan legal and public relations fees. Does it also go to house some of our Bishops in their own large expensive homes (one in particular on Rittenhouse Square) while half empty rectories abound? Spin isn’t going to save our Church. Action will.
